merging my pictures and cards

1984 Fleer

1984 Fleer – Hideki Matsui

In early 2011 I attended a game at the Cell between the White Sox and the Oakland A’s. I had some nice sunny conditions to get some shots so I made a few cards from them. Here is one of the 1984 Fleer tribute cards that I made. I always liked this design, and for some reason I have always liked the way that the A’s players looked on the cards. While I am cleaning out all of the older cards of mine I thought that I would start with some of these ’84 Fleer A’s cards that I made. They were made with the intention of putting them on the backs of my 2011 Custom Set which was never really finished. I think that I made way too big of a workload for myself on that one. I was very interested that day to see the former Yankees star in an A’s uniform. The season before I had pictures of him playing for the Angels, and I thought that it would be great to see him on a card in a different uniform.

1984 Fleer – Kurt Suzuki

Kurt is a player that I have followed for a while now. I watched him on television when his Cal State Fullerton team made its run in 2004. I was in Omaha watching the day that they won the College World Series against Texas. For some reason this catcher made me take notice. If you have read this blog you know that the catcher is by far my favorite position. Kurt is one of the current crop of catchers that I enjoy watching. I took this picture early last season as he was warming up before facing the White Sox. (more…)


1984 Fleer – Mark Buehrle

Today I thought I would get rid of the rest of the Buehrle cards that are sitting in my completed folder. I have not made a card for a while, but I have so many sitting around that this blog could go on for a while if I never made another card. With Mark Buehrle leaving the White Sox I thought that I would put out the rest of my completed cards of one of my favorite players. I am sure that I will try and see Mark pitch next season to get a couple new cards of him in a Marlins uniform.  (more…)


1984 Fleer Special – Pierre, Rios, Quentin

This was one of the first SuperStar Special cards that I attempted. As a kid I always looked forward to seeing who Fleer paired up on these cards every year. I don’t have the access to the players like Fleer does so I have to be a little creative when I make these cards.  (more…)


1984 Fleer – Brent Lillibridge

Brent has had a pretty good last couple of days while getting some playing time in the outfield for the White Sox. I have seen him hit two home runs in two days watching limited parts of the two games. I thought that I should make a couple of cards of the young guy to give him some love on this site. I like the simplicity of the ’84 Fleer template so I thought I would use that for the first card. I added the updated logo just to see how it looked. I think that it look pretty cool. (more…)
